The Roads and Maritime Services Stewardship Maintenance Contracts and Performance Specified Maintenance Contract are due to expire in June 2021.  RMS have commenced a project to develop and procure the next generation of maintenance contracts and are keen to liaise with industry to present  and discuss the way forward.
